Labour candidate quits 2008 election.

A LABOUR candidate in one of the party's top council target seats in Cardiff has withdrawn at the last minute.

Mark Hancock, of Kimberley Road, Penylan, Cardiff, has taken his name off the list of candidates competing in Pentwyn at the council elections on May 1.

His withdrawal means Labour now has candidates for only three of the four seats in the ward, which are currently all held by the Liberal Democrats.

Mr Hancock has also withdrawn his name from the list for two community council seats in Cardiff, Radyr South and Morganstown, but is still standing in Radyr North.

Mr Hancock withdrew due to a "change of personal circumstances".
